Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham
under the patronage of Blessed John Henry Newman

In this section:


Welcome to the Parish Church of Our Lady of Lourdes, Sheffield where the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham meets to offer Mass according to the Ordinariate Use. Everyone is welcome and all Catholics in communion with the Holy See are permitted to receive the Sacraments with us. These Masses are listed by referring to Dates for your diary opposite.

While we are certainly untraditional in our structure we are traditional in our forms of worship using the liturgical celebrations proper to the Anglican Tradition which have been approved by the Holy See, so as to maintain the liturgical, spiritual and pastoral traditions of the Anglican Communion within the Catholic Church.

We are in communion with the Universal Church because we believe that having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, through the Church he established, is in accordance with the unity for which our Lord prayed. We discover the healing of Christ’s Church through our communion within the Catholic Church and it is our mission to continually call other Christians to begin that same healing and unity we have started to experience ourselves.



The next Mass at the Catholic Church of Our Lady of Lourdes, Spring Water Avenue, Hackenthorpe, will next take place on Monday, 7th January at 11.00am.    This will be followed be followed by our customary lunch at the Fairway Golf Club.. Everyone is welcome.


For the foreseeable future Father Stafford will be offering Mass at St Joseph's Parish Church, 40 Packington Street, Bradford, BD5 7LD. I shall advertise Mass at Bradford on this site until the group is firmly established. Father Stafford will also continue to offer Mass at York until Seminarian John Tee is ordained priest and will assume leadership of the group. For details at York refer to the York web page

Please pray for the continued growth of the Ordinariate in Yorkshire.
